As you know, I am not one to blindly follow scientific orthodoxy. I am well aware that mainstream science has an almost cult-like resistance to any ideas which stray from the currently accepted paradigm. I also suffer from intermittent insomnia.
I mentioned how the lesswrong folks talk big about being "Bayesians", but if that doesn't involve integrals of ugly prior distributions and whatevs, it doesn't mean anything. However, I noticed that, in a couple of their posts, they do, in fact, have ugly Bayes integrals.
The Dark Ages were pretty awesome, I think it really is rather terrible that people have been soured on the era by the propagandistic terms in which it is described. They weren't dark. There were a couple rough centuries, but a lot of things got down and the long march of "progress", ugh, continued.
If the universe is 13.7 billion years old, how can it possibly be 56 billion light-years across? Since the speed of light is constant and cannot have changed, the maximum size of the the universe measured between its two most distant points should be no more than 27.4 billion light-years wide. I'll explain a little further inside.
So I was thinking about people planting tree's to make up for the carbon cost of 'em flying from one place to another. Also, I was thinking about the fact that I breathe in oxygen more than I breathe it out, and I breathe out Carbon Dioxide more than I breathe it in.
